Wizarding World T-Shirt Contest


style=”text-align: left; font-family: Arial;”>You are the owner of the
struggling wizarding clothes shop, Bolts and Bobbins, trying to drum up
business. You hit upon the idea to get more kids into the shop (because
we all know that where the youngsters go so follow mommy and daddy’s
galleons!). You’ve decided to market a line of T-shirts for Hogwarts
students bearing slogans, quips, and phrases appealing to teenage
wizards and witches. For December’s contest, create an original design
for a T-shirt you think could be a best-seller. Winning entries will be
made available for our readers to download and transfer to their own
T-shirts!

General Rules:

  • Anyone 13 years of age and
    over may enter the contest, including staff members who are not
    involved in the judging process.
  • One entry per person.
  • All
    submissions must be the original work of the contestant. Any entries
    found to contain the work of another artist will be disqualified.

    entries must meet PG-13 standards of decency and good taste.
  • All decisions by the judges are final.
  • The first place winner
    will receive a handcrafted wand donated by Wizard
    Wood Wands

    and honorable mention(s) will receive 150, 100, and 50 MyLeaky points

Contest
Rules

  • Design a T-shirt (via computer or hand) to be
    sold to teenage witches and wizards. Base your design on an originally
    worded slogan, quip, or phrase. You may put a wizarding twist on an
    existing joke or saying if the change gives the words a new meaning.
    Please do not include quotes or illustrations from the HP books,
    interviews, movies, official licensed products, or any such official
    media, owing to copyright issues.
  • Please remember this contest
    is for teenage witches and wizards and not for us as readers and fans so
    quips like “I’ve got a SIRIUS obsession” would not work for this
    contest since Sirius is considered a criminal in the wizarding world.
  • Your
    design may be for the front or back of the shirt, or both, and may
    include an illustration. An illustration or fancy design is not required
    since simplicity works just as well to showcase the slogan.
  • Please
    create a full-scale illustration of your design which can be copied for
    screening onto a t-shirt. Create a separate illustration showing the
    format and placement of the slogans on the shirt (front and back if
    needed). You may indicate the colors you recommend for both the shirt
    and the printing if you feel they are important to the overall effect.
  • Please
    submit your entry in .jpg, .png, or .gif format. You may submit two
    files (one for the full scale design and the other for the format
    (front/back in one file)). File sizes no larger than 2 MB, please.
  • Please
    include the name you would like to have appear with your slogan (real
    name, Leaky Lounge, MyLeaky, etc).
  • All submissions must be
    e-mailed to [email protected] by 11:59 pm (EDT) on
    December 17
    , with “T-shirt Slogans” in the subject line of the
    e-mail.
